The San Francisco Giants put an end to Bobby Cox's illustrious managing career and secured themselves a meeting with the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series. But wait, and literally I mean WAIT, because the NLCS doesn't start until Saturday. C'mon, WTF are we supposed to do until then?
*Go squirrel hunting. Capping a half dozen gray critters will help relieve stress. Pan fry those bad boys in some butter and hot sauce and you would think you're eating hot wings.
*Catch up on missed television. Whether it's Dancing With The Stars or Grey's Anatomy, now is the perfect time to watch all that drama and action you'll be craving without hope of another Halladay no-hitter this work week.
*Say hello to your wife. See what she's been up to lately, she already knows what you've been doing- playoff baseball. Maybe take her out to dinner, catch a movie, play some Scrabble.
*Do some home brewing. Personally, I'm bottling a porter on Wednesday and starting a mint chocolate stout to be ready for the holidays.
*Fantasy football. Make sure you're not still starting Michael Vick or Clinton Portis.
*Yard work. It's autumn, meaning fall, meaning leaves are falling. Rake them you lazy S.O.B.
*Exercise. Watching baseball leads to snacking and usually adult beverage consumption...fatter. Get up and do something with you body before it turns against you or you go up 2 waist sizes.
*Read a book. Pick up a piece of fine literature and delve into it, whether it be Moby Dick, The Great Gatsby, Tale of Two Cities, Kama Sutra, or Green Eggs and Ham.
